Greg Laurie, the pastor of Harvest Christian Fellowship in Riverside, California, has issued a chilling warning that biblical prophecy suggests North Korea could wipe out the U.S. in a nuclear attack before the apocalyptic battle of Armageddon begins.
According to Pastor Laurie, God revealed the hidden secrets of the tragic end of the U.S. to him while he was reading prophetic bible passages. While he was meditating on the significance of the prophecies, he suddenly realized that none of the passages talked about a superpower nation existing in the time leading to the apocalyptic end of the world when the final battle of Armageddon will occur. Yet, today we have the U.S. as the sole superpower nation in the world.
Laurie concluded that the silence of the prophetic passages about a superpower nation that can be identified as the U.S. indicates that the country could have been wiped out from the face of the Earth before the end time prophecies begin to be fulfilled.
"Here is what concerns me. We do not find the reigning superpower on the face of the Earth anywhere in the Last Days scenario," Laurie says in a video uploaded to YouTube. "So where is America?"
"I pray we are not out of the picture, because we have been in some kind of nuclear conflict."However, Laurie notes in the video that the biblical end-time prophecies also do not mention North Korea and its leader Kim Jong-Un. He points out that instead of North Korea, the Bible talks about Iran.
Laurie's conclusion, based on the alleged evidence of biblical prophecy, is that North Korea is not mentioned specifically in the end time prophecies because the country will be allied with Iran in the "Last Days."
According to Laurie, wherever the Bible mentions Iran in its end time prophecies, it could be referring to a coalition of countries led by Iran, and North Korea is one of the countries in the "axis of evil" coalition led by Iran.
"In the Last Days there is no mention of any nation that would resemble North Korea. However, the Bible does speak of Iran in the End Times scenario," Laurie says in the video.
"You might be surprised to know there is an alignment of sorts between North Korea and Iran."To buttress his argument that the U.S. could soon be wiped out by a coalition of countries that include Iran and North Korea, Laurie refers to a recent comment by John Bolton, the former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations. According to Laurie, Bolton warned that the U.S. must do everything in its power to prevent the North Koreans from acquiring nuclear weapons, and the missile technology to deliver them, because once they acquire full nuclear capability, Iran will purchase the nuclear devices and missiles from North Korea.
"John Bolton recently said if North Korea developed a delivery system for nuclear weapons, Iran would have it the next day simply by writing a check."
Some believers will probably consider Laurie's warning to be very relevant at a time that tensions have escalated further between the U.S. and North Korea after a senior North Korean official warned the West to take the country's threat to conduct hydrogen bomb tests over the Pacific Ocean "literally."
North Korea also further escalated tensions when it warned that the country is taking Trump's recently announced plan to visit South Korea as a grave security threat, saying it could spark war in the Korean peninsula.
